Not even gonna apologize for my abhorrent lack of posting these last few weeks.

I WILL say that when this summer is over and there is snow on the ground for 8 months straight and it’s………- 86 outside, I’ll probably be posting much more often and then you’ll leave me comments that say things like…..”Get a life, won’t ya?” and “Bored much?”  So just wait for that time when you feel like berating me for not posting lately.


Our 5-year-old is an unusual kid and not unusual like weird-skull-nodule-unusual or freaky-wandering-eye-unusual.


See, every day after I hang clothes outside….and don’t get me started on how much THAT fulfills every. female. weirdness. inside. of. me…….the little boys know that I am going to swing them for a few minutes.

During this daily swinging time (DST), 5-Year-Old always has the same conversation with me. 

This is how it goes……

5-Year-Old:  “Mommy?  When I’m a guy (he means man), I’m going to buy a car.”

Me:  “That’s a good thing.  You will need one so that you can go to work and support your family.”

5-Year-Old:  “I’m going to start saving my money now.”

Seriously.  He’s serious.  COULD HE BE ANY CUTER?

Me:  “I think that’s a FANTASTIC idea and VERY smart and mature of you to even think that way at your age.”

5-Year-Old:  “And when I’m a man, I’ll get a wife and babies.  And you can come visit me and I’ll show you my babies.”

Me:  “I’d LOVE to do that!  Mommy and Daddy will come visit you whenever we can!”

5-Year-Old:  “And I’ll have a car and a house.  Mommy?  Where can I get a car when I’m a guy?”

Me:  “Well, it’s kinda a car store.  You go to it and there are all kinds of cars sitting out in the parking lot and you can pick which one you like and can afford.”

5-Year-Old:  “How will I get there, Mommy?”

Me:  “Well, we can take you.”

5-Year-Old:  “Okay.”

Then he swang a little more, thinking, I’m sure about his future life as a guy.

And then he said, “Also, I’ll need bigger shoes.”
